If you think you're beaten, you are
If you think you're not, you don't,
If you'd like to win but think you can't,
It's almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you've lost,
For oft in the world we find
Success begins with a fellow's will,
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you're outclassed, you are
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the strongest or fastest man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the one who thinks he can.
